Double check and make sure if the compressor is running. If it's running and you're not cooling, you are going to need a refrigeration guy check the pressures on the compressor system. That's all there is to it.

Cooling quit suddenly in both freezer and fridge side. Pulled out unit and sounds like compressor is running and compressor fan (across coils) is running. Circulation fan in freezer is not running....


First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it seems
to be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Check cold control (thats where you turn it colder)

The freezer seems to get somewhat cool on the highest setting while the fridge doesn't get cool at all. the compressor doesn't even kick on.


Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Fridge section freezes


I would need a model number to even try. Several different ones will probably work.
There are other reasons for the fridge to freeze. The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

Does the compressor ever cut off? How about when you turn the freezer temp control to the warmer side.

My refrigerator has unusually high temp... 77 degrees and counting.. nothing unusual in the last 36 hours. may have started to creep up yesterday. the freezer seems to be working fine and nothing is...


The most common cause of inefficient refrigeration is dirty condenser coils or a defective condenser fan (the fan at the bottom of the refrigerator that pulls air across the coils).

Try the free fix first... Clean the coils. And while you've got the panel off, see if the fan's running.

Hope this helps.

Fridge seems to require max cold temp control


did you check to be sure the the compressor cooling fan is operational? if this is bad it will cause a problem similar to your condition. another thing if this checks ok is that your temp control could be getting weak, ( it has small springs connected to the contacts) and may need replacing. the fact that it will get to 0f tells me that compressor and freon system should be fine.
you mentioned the warm area on the side of your door is a anti moisture feature. if this area is abnormally hot it would indicate a bad condenser fan motor which is the compressor cooling fan.
If you have any further questions let me know thanks Peyton

Maytag side by side slowly getting warmer


I have actually been having the same problem. We have a Maytag MTB2156GEQ and it hasn't been cooling well at all lately. Temp in the fridge is about 52 degrees even on the highest setting. The freezer seems to be fine. I pulled off the back panel and vacuumed out the condensor coil and everything else under there. I then pulled out the control panel on the ceiling of the fridge. The channel between the freezer and fridge was almost completely blocked with ice. I cleaned it out by taking out the back panel of the freezer and pouring hot water down through the hole until it was clear.
that seem fix the issue.
